How to pre-treat with Ariel liquid
For tough stains, pre-treating is the best way to great results. And with Ariel Liquid Detergent and the pre-treat cap, it couldn’t be simpler. Just pour detergent onto the stain and use the flexible wings on the pre-treat cap to spread the detergent deep into the garment’s fibres. You can find out more in our video.
How much to dose
When it comes to doing your laundry, it’s important to use the right amount of Ariel liquid. But the amount of Ariel that you need depends on a few different criteria.
- How large is your washing machine?
- How dirty is your laundry?
- Is the water in your region hard?
Make sure to check the dosing instructions on your pack first, before using the pre-treat cap as a dosing device, to ensure you use the correct detergent dosage.
- A 4-5kg capacity washing machine needs 35ml of liquid.
- 6-8kg capacity machines need 55ml of liquid.
- Larger machines with a capacity of 9kg+ need 70ml of liquid.
- For extra dirty clothes or hard water, add some extra detergent. Check the dosage table on your bottle for more information.
How much Ariel liquid to dose
You can use your pre-treat cap as a dosing device. Just fill it as per the instructions above and place it directly into your washing machine’s drum, on top of the laundry. Dosing directly into the drum helps you to achieve outstanding results. In fact, if you pour the liquid into the drawer, the detergent could get lost in the washing machine pipes before reaching the drum, reducing effectiveness.
How to wash
You should load your dirty laundry before dosing Ariel liquid detergent. Make sure not to overload by using the palm trick. Just place your palm into the top of your drum, above your laundry. If your hand doesn’t fit, remove items until it does.
Always make sure to check your fabric care labels, too, for best results.
Keep detergents safe
Don’t forget Ariel laundry detergents are chemicals, so for child safety they should be kept out of reach of children and pets. Always keep your detergent out of the way of grasping hands, preferably somewhere dark and dry.
For the best results, follow these simple dosing steps. Use Ariel Liquid Detergent and you can look forward to outstanding result in the first wash.
